The Slacker G2 Internet Radio Giveaway

Mari’s had her say (thumbs up), so the time has come to give away our Slacker G2 review unit ($200 MSRP).

We’re both big fans of the Slacker web radio service, and Mari is also a satisfied owner of the first generation Slacker player. What separates Slacker Radio from say Pandora on the iPhone is their music licensing terms… While Pandora requires a persistent Internet connection for streaming, Slacker hardware periodically downloads (over WiFi) buckets of tracks from your queue of pre-selected “stations” – meaning, you can take Slacker on a plane with pre-loaded music. Slacker offer two service tiers, free and premium. Most would probably be content with the free service, although a paid subscription enables unlimited skipping and saving song favorites. Additionally, Slacker Radio provides all sorts of artist information which has been kinda fun. However, being a minimalist in search of further convergence, I’m personally holding out for a Slacker mobile client.

If the Slacker G2 sounds like something you’d enjoy, simply leave a comment saying you want in on this giveaway. One lucky US resident will be randomly selected as the winner in the next day or so.

  1. I totally want in on this. I was just trying Slacker out on my Logitech Duet, and really like it. It’s just too bad the Duet isn’t up to snuff!

  2. Dave:

    Would love to have teh G@. By the way send me an email. I got the MSI Wind to work with the existing Wifi Card on OSX. Realtek released soem beta drivers on for MAC.

  3. Hey Dave,

    I hope all is well; I just wanted to stop by say hello and enter to win the Slacker G2 since I am big fan of your blog and Slacker.


  4. Hmm… I want in on this giveaway! I got one of Woot’s $50 G1s, and like it a lot, but smaller, better, faster… just like I used to be.

  5. Dave,
    I have ZERO idea what to give my 16 yr old for Christmas this year. I believe this would be a fantastic gift for a well deserved 16 yr old. He has maintained excellent grades and this would be a nice gift.
    And a Happy Holiday to you and yours Dave as well
